<<< Im a newbie to sca, and just wondering if someone could please correspond with me about basic stuff i need to know?
Im honestly rather clueless, other than I need to make garb, and guys that fight with swords are hawt. I have tent, and sleeping bag.
>>>You might want to take a look at the NEWCOMERS section in the Florilegium. The address is given in my signature block below.
<<< I just joined another group that will teach me how to cook sca food. (yay i love to cook) >>>
There are a number of sections in the Florilegium having to do with cooking such as:
Feast-Reviews Feasts Food
Food-Books Food-Breads-Grains Food-By-Region
Food-Condiments Food-Dairy Food-Fruits
Food-Manuscripts Food-Meats Food-Sweets
I also have a section dedicated specifically to BEVERAGES.
There is also a CLOTHING section.
If you have a particular type of food or a culture that you are interested in, send me an email or post here and I'd be happy to suggest various files that might interest you.
<<< i will be going to my first garb making meeting, but i would like to make connections, and kind of help my shire get a little better organized. i am hoping to make connections that can kind of teach me about the sca organization in general, and ideas for fun shire parties that are family friendly. :D >>>
Perhaps some of the games and files in the CHILDREN section might be of interest. There are also at least a pair of articles there on making clothing for children.
<<< i am working on a scottish persona: lark macintosh. Please let me know if this is an acceptable name. >>>
I'm not a name herald, so I'd hate to hazard a guess.
